Anyone who has done work at university level will very likely be familiar with the concept of ‘academic integrity.’ The message is loud and clear: plagiarism is wrong, correct citation is essential, and all work submitted must be original.
Because undergrad students have regular assignments and assessments, they are reminded of these principles all the time. But once you start the long project of working on a thesis or dissertation, the reminders about academic integrity become less frequent.
If you need to brush up on your knowledge of appropriate referencing, copyright, or other academic integrity issues, you may be interested in some new interactive modules available to AUT students. These are not compulsory, but you can work through any or all of them at your own pace.
There are five modules available, on:
- Academic Integrity & Collaboration
- Intellectual Property & Copyright
- Academic Misconduct (including contract cheating)
You can find these new modules in Blackboard under PGMe – just look for ‘Academic Integrity’ in the left-hand menu.
